    Why would Ariza come back to Hou after Morey traded him off?
    It ain't happening.

    You totally misread the situation.

    He likes Miami, wants to play with Lebron. If he was so against coming here he could go somewhere else or stay in Miami. I'm sure Miami would prefer Bosh and Wade rather than just Wade.

    Smarten up son.

    So we overpay Ariza to get him to return to the Rockets instead of overpaying Parsons?

    But it won't happen. We will resign parsons

    Yeah... we're not overpaying Ariza. Learned once, and if we're overpaying anyone, I'd bet it's Chandler.

    I'm just pointing out some examples that we could replace parsons for less. I'm not saying Ariza is the main choice, but just as an option that has a chance. Cause well Aaron Brooks was traded but then soon came back, even though we traded him again. Lol, but my main point, is instead of hoping lebron goes to Cleveland, why not upgrade our bench instead of a position? Think about this, would you rather have a better bench than we have now and have a more reliable bench to let out starters rest, or have only one upgrade to the PF position and having us hope that out starters can quickly rest up?

    Think about how we had to quickly put back our starters because we would lose our lead because our bench wasn't able to play good defense nor offense?

    not sure if this was posted but larry coon just said we need to drop another 3.5 million in salary if we want to match parsons offer and sign bosh. Apparently that means dropping Moti and jones. Calling Bima to confirm, i cant link the tweet because I dont know how but its on Larry coons twitter.

    Well unless Bosh is willing to come here for slightly less than the max, then that ain't happening. Unless Morey has some master plan to replace the entire bench with zero cap flexibility.

    Tip jar bet, say $10? I say we end up being able to BOTH sign Bosh and keep Parsons at the end of all this.

    What do you think will happen then?
